The suspension of MDC T deputy treasurer Eltom Mangoma is null and void.

The party’s Secretary General Tendai Biti said there is no legal basis for the suspension which he indicated was not unanimous as claimed by party spokesman Douglas Mwonzora.

Biti told reporters from his law firm office on Friday afternoon that the suspension has no basis whatsoever. Biti announced that the case is now to spend up to the Standing Committee. Biti who himself was part of the National Council meeting on Friday took charge saying,
“We sat this afternoon but the events thereof are regrettable and I represent the views of many of us who are democratic and have suffered for this,” he quipped.

He continued,
“We received a report from the national chairman and the decision was that we did not think the matter should be referred to the national council. We agreed that the leadership should go for a retreat and find each other.

“However coming to the national council; some people who received suspension letters as they tried to enter the meeting. The biggest crime is that there was no vote people where asked what they think, some answered while some remained mum.

“As the secretary general of the party I have a duty to uphold and protect the constitution. We will now call for a national executive meeting before a properly constituted national council is convened.”

“If that national council decides in its wisdom to charge Mangoma he should be given his right of reply.”

Elton Mangoma has been the subject of a major discussion for several weeks to date after he opened a motion to seek the replacing of the presidency of Morgan Tsvangirai in an effort to save the party from total destruction. He was assaulted on 15 February during a meeting and ever since youths said to have been hired for that purpose have been on a rampage around the country monitoring and threatening anyone seemed or deemed to be supporting his motion.
